Friday morning links
♣ Barack Obama was supposed to move us away from the policies of George W. Bush and the erosion of civil liberties we saw under the Bush Administration and the so-called "Patriot Act." So I just have to ask: How's that hope & change workin' out for ya?
♣ Joseph Bayly talks about how our wicked culture permits legal traffic of babies in the USA over at BaylyBlog.
♣ "I will speak until I can no longer speak, I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our constitution is important, that your right to trial by jury is precious, that no American should be killed on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court." -- U.S. Senator Rand Paul
♣ LeBron James is a great player, but it is way too early to be talking about whether he is the best ever.
♣ When you hear "zero tolerance" it almost always translates to zero intelligence. The idiots responsible for this should be fired from their jobs.
♣ Kermit Gosnell is an incredibly evil and wicked man - but that should be expected from an abortionist.
♣ Under Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on large soft drinks, "Starbucks customers can order, say, a Venti White Hot Chocolate with whole milk and whipped cream (640 calories) but not a venti black coffee with four teaspoons of sugar (60 calories)." This is insane.
♣ I would hope that columnist Doug Giles recognizes that the video he posted on his website is obviously satire. If the other four bullet points didn't make it obvious, teaching boys to be homosexual should make it abundantly clear!
